The NAPA brand, established in the US in 1925, has grown exponentially since its European expansion in 2019. Following in America’s footsteps, NAPA quickly introduced Carlyle Tools.

Named after one of the founding members of NAPA and Automotive Hall of Fame Inductee — Carlyle Fraser — Carlyle Tools is the professional automotive tool and equipment line of NAPA. Carlyle provides professionals with affordable, high-performance tools that are dependable and durable.

Carlyle’s motor racing pedigree is a clear demonstration of its commitment to developing quality tools that satisfy consumer expectations. Built with professionals in mind, all tools meet or exceed ASME Standard B107, and feature superior finishes and strength treatments rendering them some of the toughest, longest-lasting hand tools on Earth.


Carlyle automotive hand tools are not only built with superior technician quality but also designed with feedback and input from industry technicians to ensure excellence at every stage. For peace of mind, all of the tools come with a lifetime guarantee. After all, every time a mechanic invests in a tool, they’re investing in their future.

Carlyle continues to expand rapidly in the UK, with several ranges including:

  • Professional Hand Tools
